The weathers been dismal for the last few weeks and im sure the sales of tungsten beads and barbless hooks have risen tenfold. My tungsten bead selection has been decimated and some wonderful looking bugs have been produced.
Below is a pattern I’ve been messing around with, this time with a couple of turns of flu pink CDC as a hackle. It’s a fly I was using over the weekend and fortunately, it worked!
